Thumbs up

Definitely use Bittorrent. I tried it at work this morning and I had all 3 CD's in about 1 hour. Granted my download speed was at 650K but hey what can you do? ;-)

Got it and it seems to be working pretty good. Guy at work downloaded all the .iso files so I just had to burn em.
Used 'yum' and got gkrellm installed, had a little glitch with my flash plugin and mozilla but a quick search of LQ took care of that...
Just an FYI I was getting the error:
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/local/mozilla/plugins/ [ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]

I created a link in /usr/lib -> ln -s
and the Flash plugin works now.
So far so good.

It would probably take me about a week to download the CDs at 26.4k. That is all the local telephone lines are capable of in my neighborhood. DSL and broadband is not available where I live either. So, I purchased the Fedora Core 1 CDs from for $6.95 plus shipping. They have both the 3 CD disk set and the 6 CD disk set available. That is probably the best solution for those of us with slow dial-up connections or who do not have CD burners.
